I trust Morningside Nannies & their research into their nannies more than any of the other seven agencies we talked with. The checks are reliable and the quality of nannies was superb. The process of finding a nanny was handled quite professionally.
I had an emergency situation and had a nanny sent over for the following day. I am so pleased with the service provided by Morningside Nannies. My son immediately fell in love with the nanny assigned to us. We couldn’t be happier.
During our search for our current nanny I used several well-known services in Houston. I found that Morningside Nannies had the highest- quality applicants in town.
The first person you recommended met my needs perfectly.
We’ve placed ads in newspapers on two occasions and have gone through an Au Pair program twice. This has been our best experience by far!
We made you work and you did! I was extremely picky! Thanks.
I liked the fact that you screened the candidates before sending them to us, rather than sending the candidate to me before I knew anything about them, like happened with (name withheld), your competition.
Morningside Nannies only sent me nannies that fit my needs. I felt that I wasn’t sent the resume of everyone on file.
Originally, I tried to find a nanny on my own and it took me much, much longer and only half of them spoke English. I had to do my own background checks. Morningside Nannies made it much easier, faster and more efficient.
Compared to other agencies Morningside presented a higher caliber of candidate.
The International Nanny Association, a non-profit educational association, has developed the INA Nanny Basic Skills Exam and the INA Nanny Credential Exam that nannies can take directly through the association.
The INA Nanny Basic Skills Exam tests a nanny’s basic childcare knowledge. No studying is required for this exam and the exam is taken online.
The INA Nanny Credential Exam tests a nanny’s practical childcare knowledge. To sit for the exam it is recommended that a nanny have at least 2,000 hours of childcare experience and review the study guide Beyond Parenting Basics, The International Nanny Association’s Official Guide to In-Home Childcare. Exam takers must also have current CPR and first aid certification.
The exam is taken online but test takers must secure a proctor to administer the exam. Those who pass the exam earn the title of INA Credentialed Nanny.
Both exams and the nanny credential exam study guide are available in both English and Spanish. Nannies must score at least a 70% for a passing score.
